Corrective Reading program evaluated with secondary students in San Diego

Campbell, M. L.
Abstract:
This study examined the effect of Corrective Reading (CR) on the reading achievement of seventh and eighth grade students in San Diego. Forty students were placed in the experimental group (CR), and all were reading at the second (19), third (14), or fourth grade level (9). Reading achievement was compared to a nonequivalent group of students in traditional English classes who were reading at least at the third grade level and were emotionally stable. The Woodcock Reading Mastery Test (WRMT) was administered to all students for pre- and posttest measures. Results indicated that students in the CR group recorded larger gains than students in the comparison group. Students in the CR group recorded an average gain of 2.2 years in 9 months while students in the comparison group recorded an average gain of .4 months. On each subtest of the WRMT, except word identification, students in the CR group recorded significantly larger gains than students in the comparison groups.
